Production Details / Press Releases

What happens when dreams and reality collide? In “soft fists insist”, an excerpt from the piece „IMAGO”, a woman is confronted with popular images and ideas about how she — young, white, and female — should behave in the world. As she grapples to interpret these ideations, she begins to lose track of her deeper needs and fears. A piece about the space between what we are and what we imagine ourselves to be, “soft fists insist” asks the question, how does the unconscious relate to social constructions such as femininity, ageing, and desire?
